Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In the marriage contract P Eleph 1.11 (B.C. 311–10) (= Selections, p. 3) provision is made that in certain circumstances the bridegroom shall repay the bride ἀργυρίου Ἀλεξανδρείου (δραχμὰς) Α ̄ , ";1000 drachmae of Alexander’s coinage."; According to the editor, this is ";perhaps the earliest documentary mention of Alexander’s coinage,"; unless Syll 176 is about two years older. In P Amh II. 40.21 (ii/B.C.) mention is made of a bribe consisting of ἀργυρίου στα (τῆρας) η ̄, ";eight staters of silver,"; by means of which a certain Epiodorus secured a fresh division of land in the interests of the temple of Socnopaeus. For a similar use of ἀργυρισμός and ἀργυρίζομαι see Wilcken Archiv iv. p. 174.
